What is a house for children?

It is a place for voices to be heard, laughter to be shared, wonder to be experienced.  Come see a children's house for yourself.  On Saturday, February 2nd from 10:00 until 12:00 we will be hosting at our Spring Open House.

Davina and the Vagabonds at the Northfield Arts Guild

The Northfield Arts Guild 411 Concert Series presents the sassy and crisp sounds of Davina and the Vagabonds at 7:30pm on Saturday, January 12, 2019 at Armory Square, 519 Division Street, Northfield.   

Davina and the Vagabonds have been creating excitement on the national music scene for more than a decade with their dynamic shows, quality musicianship, and powerful stage presence.  With blues and jazz styling, the group radiates a Memphis swagger and a New Orleans charisma.  

“Davina Sowers is a one-of-a-kind performer whose singing… has a sassiness bearing some comparison to that of heart-thumping blues queens Ma Rainey and Ida Cox,” says Downbeat magazine.

The Guild presents Davina and the Vagabonds on Jan 12 at Armory Square.
